So we all know that video game movies tend to suck. We also know that somehow, people keep choosing to make the really crappy ones into movies, rather than games that are actually relevant anymore.
But did you know that there are 28 Video Game Movies in development right now? I had no idea that there were so many. And that some of the names on there are from games that just aren’t worth a damn.
Full list after the jump!
Mortal Kombat (2010)
Spy Hunter (2009)
Splinter Cell (2010)
Fear Effect (2008)
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)
Cold Fear (2008)
Warcraft (2009)/World of Warcraft (2011)
Metal Gear Solid (2009)
Clock Tower (2009)
The Suffering (2009)
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009)
Kane & Lynch (2009)
Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars (2010)
King of Fighters (2010)
The Legend of Spyro (2009)
Sabotage 1943 (2009)
Resident Evil 4 (2010)
Earthworm Jim (2010)
God of War (2010)
Gears of War (2010)
Area 51 (2011)
If you want more details, the original list has some good info and links about each of those titles. There are just a few notables on there, but the only notable ones that are actually moving forward are the Bioshock, MGS and Prince of Persia movies. It really is odd that more relevant titles don’t get made into movies.
Seriously, if a Halo movie had dropped in the same year as Halo 3, it would have been huge. As it stands, it’ll probably come out when nobody cares about the franchise anymore.
What do you guys think? Will they suck?
